Missionary Airfare Information

Traveling or on behalf of a missionary organization? Looking for the lowest airfare? Welcome to Economy Travel.

What is a Missionary Airfare?

Economy Travel has been helping mission-focused travelers find low-cost airfare since 1988. We work with service-led individuals and missionary organizations to land in destinations all over the world. These special rates are only available to focused humanitarian or faith-based travel.

At Economy Travel, we help groups and individuals get the lowest airfare rates specially available for dedicated missions trips. Last year, more than 159 organizations trusted us to find them the best deals for the best travel options. We helped those groups with tickets for one-way trips, international trips and more. We help you find lower rates than normal travel sites, like Travelocity or Expedia. Plus, we offer you a lot more flexibility and accommodation than normal travelers are able to receive.

Advantages of Humanitarian Airfare

As a missionary traveler, you qualify for our contracted humanitarian airfares. Below are some of the benefits you qualify for when volunteering your time to do great things. Our expertise with missions travel planning allows us to provide the low fares and flexible rules you need. We help support charitable missions work by offering:

  • Low Pricing: Most of the time, our fares are lower than the traditional airfares offered directly at the airline's site or with the large airfare websites. There are times when we are much lower because we do not have advance purchase requirements.
  • Added Flexibility: Those who are traveling using humanitarian airfare are using flexible tickets. This allows everyone to change or cancel their plans if something changes at the last minute, with reduced penalties from airlines, in most cases.
  • Baggage Discounts: There are many cases where humanitarian airfare will allow travelers up to three times the standard amount of luggage before they start to charge for bags. Airlines understand that many travelers who fly using humanitarian airfare are doing charitable work and this requires equipment.
  • Extended Ticketing Times: There are cases where tickets via humanitarian airfare can be held for up to 11 months without commitments. This means that travelers can book early, take advantage of lower prices and avoid penalties.
  • One-Way Tickets Allowed: While most travelers have to pay a premium for one-way tickets, humanitarian airfare provides access to one-way tickets at about half of the price of a round-trip fare.
These are just a few of the numerous benefits that come with humanitarian airfare options.

Special Advantages for Non-profits!

There are several types of organizations that regularly qualify for humanitarian airfare, and are our most common clients, including:

  • Humanitarian and Missionary Organizations: Annually, hundreds of humanitarian and missionary organizations purchase tickets through us to save money, which means more money can be spent carrying out charitable work.
  • Churches: Church airfare are among the biggest segment qualifying for humanitarian trips, as they regularly perform missionary work.
  • Adoptions: Adoption airfare is a great way to make a difference in the life of a child, which is why these trips qualify for humanitarian aid.
